UNESCO to encourage member states to include youth in National Commissions

Pierre Sané, Assistant Director General of UNESCO’s Social and Human Science Sector, announced on October 1 that the General Conference will try to introduce a resolution that will commit member states to opening up their National Commissions to youth participation. According to Marcio Barbosa, Deputy Director General of UNESCO,
"If it’s adopted, the resolution will mean that National Commissions have to reach out to youth organizations and integrate their representatives in the work of the Commissions."
